    A symbol for intersexuality might be missing, if such a symbol exists
    apart from U+26A5 is used here and U+26A7 is used here

    I don't think there are symbols for eunuchs. This is pretty awful.
    U+26AA could do unless it were necessary to distinguish from other
    asexuals on the bassis of process.

    I ddon't know what Hans is on about either.
